Ridge is very walking distance from the hotel where you can explore and see the bunch of travellers.Too many grocery shops nearby the hotel. I... More

Hotel staff very friendly and attentive however negative points were,1/ Dirty towels upon arrival in room (though replaced quickly), 2/ Hot water so weak pressure as to be unusable when complaint raised room attendant came in with muddy shoes to...

We stayed there for 3 nights wef 18/10/2013. Very clean toilet, room, bed and towels. If taken view room (from balcony - R no.25 and 29) the view is not inferior than what can viewed from mall. Only drawback is they have no I house restaurant for lunch or dinner. However there are plenty of eateries within 100 metre. Sebak... More

There are some basic things essential for a good hotel: clean rooms, nice view, cordial staff, this hotel offers all. Ideally located, the rooms are spacious, the manager is an accommodating one and the location is just the icing on the cake, the only drawback is lack of parking around the hotel, but in Simla its always been like that,...

Excellent location and amazing views from the rooms. Go for Deluxe rooms with balconies as those are valley facing. They don't have a restaurant but have room service. Food is on a bit expensive side though there are plenty of eating options as soon as you step out of the Hotel. Parking has always been a challenge in Shimla but... More

On my checkout day I leave the luggage at the reception at noon. After explore... More

There was open space outside the room to stand and see the views. Room had two windows and ventilation was adequate. Even the washroom had a big Window. Room was spacious... More

Having moved here from a different (and filthy) hotel in Shimla, we were delighted to see this hotel follow their namesake and provide clean white sheets and pillows! We had a lovely corner room which meant lots of natural light and space, and great views across the mountains. The bathroom was pretty standard for an Indian hotel, although once again... More

It is an average property. Property is not well maintained. Room interior is too poor. Bathroom and room interior seems like a hostel. Also, it is located at height and in such a place that, car can't go till there. You will need to carry your luggage through staircase and a quite long way or hire local coolie.
